Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil are the two main characters in "Bagani" and both are of foreign descent, Soberano being a half-American and Gil part-Spanish and German. In one of the scenes in the trailer, Gil's fac...Keep on reading: ‘Bagani’ headwriter defends show amidst netizens’ criticisms on its ‘colorism’.....»»
